Heya SWAGgers one and all...With Month 5 about to start, I'm wondering...How was Month 4 for you?Alas, I have not been able to complete all my Tasks because I've been swamped with guest posts to publish this month. So sadly, what's fallen by the wayside is Site Comments. I just didn't have the time to leave comments and call for comments. I have been a lot better at sharing on social media so I'm not beating myself up about it. I can only do as much as I can do.This was my Month 4As you can s

A Tribute to My FatherWhenever I think of my Father these days, I get choked up. Because he's in the end stages of Lewy Body Disease and a shadow of his former self. He is in Frail Care as he can no longer walk or feed and clothe himself .He doesn't know the difference between left or right, forward or back, he doesn't know which day of the week it is. He appears to recognise us at first when we visit him but there's no way to be sure as he's not able to communicate as he did before. He talks,

I received this question from Ann @Queenredgie and it was way too complicated to answer in a comment. So for those who are interested, here you go. I've delved into some stats in Google Analytics. I don't do this often but it's a good exercise to do every and now and then to see what's working and what's not. So Thanks Ann, for getting me to look at some Stats.The first part of the question is quite easy to answer.Which Social Media PIatforms do I use most?If Wealthy Affiliate was a Social Medi

Paid Guest Posting - Yes or No?The problem with being a people pleaser is that it's really hard to say NO. I just said NO to someone who sent me a guest post to publish and I feel like a really horrible person right now.Saying No and Meaning ItThis was the first time I've rejected a post. But I just couldn't do it. I just couldn't hit that publish button.Because...The post wasn't targeted to my audience at allIt was blatantly promotional (more like a sponsored post)It wasn't well writtenIt had

Are you done with the 9 to 5? Itching to fire your boss? Tired of the long commute to work? Or are you a stay-at-home Mom looking for ways to become a work-from-home Mom? Because that's why I started googling topics like...How to Work from Home and Make Money OnlineMy hubby thinks it a bit weird that I pump up the volume whenever Dolly Parton's 9 to 5 comes on the radio. Because I don't work 9 to 5 (anymore). But I love hearing the song for exactly that reason (it reminds me how lucky I am)

Have you ever watched a cat stalking something?They edge closer... then they stop for aaages... watching... waiting... they edge a bit closer... and stop and wait again... you can see the tension and anticipation building up inside them as they start to shiver and shake... and then finally -They POUNCE!! Gotcha! ... Or not. If they miss their target, cats simply saunter off, nonchalantly, as if the whole song and dance never happened.So that's me. Now. At month-end. I missed my $1000 Target.

Phew! I've been burning the midnight oil again. I just finished transcribing an interview that is over 8,000 words long. I'm so relieved I finally got it done because it's been on my to-do list for over a month! The interview was on the 19th April!! (So sorry Lilian!)Somehow this month just ran away with me. And this week has been particularly crazy. I published 10 articles in just over 2 days. (Monday, 5, Tuesday 4 and Wednesday morning 1).New Site Content GoalsI've had to adjust my Site
